  • Performance

    A Lot of Power Packed Into an I-4

    While most similar-sized and similar-priced SUVs would offer a capable V-6 engine, the 2021 Mazda CX-9 comes with a 4-cylinder. However, this isn’t the lame I-4 you’d expect to find in a bumbling sedan; Mazda’s engine is a turbocharged 4-cylinder designed to replicate V-6 performance without the thirsty engine. It’s surprisingly potent, accelerating from 0 to 60 in as little as 7.1 seconds. It’s lightweight, too, with crisp and responsive acceleration that keeps you feeling total control, even as you take tight corners. The brakes are firm and responsive, and the suspension smooths out uneven pavement for a relaxing drive - even when you’re taking on the highway at top speeds.

    For even more peace of mind on the road, combine the available i-Activ all-wheel drive with G-Vectoring Control Plus, a suite of performance engineering upgrades. These features work in tandem to monitor road conditions, adjusting the power sent to each wheel in real-time as you propel forward and even braking slightly when necessary. The result is optimal traction in all conditions, even wet or icy weather. Meanwhile, Off-Road Traction Assist improves torque and stabilizes your drive when you’re taking on unpaved terrain.

    Overall, it’s not the sportiest SUV around, but given its supportive, drive-enhancing technology and excellent fuel economy of up to 28 MPG, you won’t miss a V-6 much. Of course, there are other Mazda products with superior, high-speed drives, but the CX-9 alluring design and other SUV perks certainly make this crossover worth the switch.

  • Interior

    The Mazda CX-9 isn’t all about the interior, but this is the feature that is sure to grab the most attention. Step inside the cabin and feel like a celebrity with an interior that looks refined and luxurious. In fact, you might assume that you can’t afford this car once you see how well it’s outfitted. However, in signature Mazda fashion, the price betrays the next-level interiors.

    Every 2021 CX-9 is outfitted with seating for up to 7 in a cool and calming cabin outfitted with soft-touch materials, nicely grained surfaces, and brushed aluminum details that highlight Mazda’s take on contemporary relaxation. Cargo space is ample, especially when you fold down the third row. Fold down the back two rows of seats - a great option for solo drivers and couples - and you’ll find enough space to travel with bulky cargo like camping equipment, furniture, and electronics.

    Exceptional Interior Technology

    Every 2021 CX-9 comes with an advanced, incredibly user-friendly infotainment system. Even the tech-averse could easily navigate through apps, settings, and driver pre-sets to their hearts’ content. The generous 10.25-inch display rivals handheld smart tablets, while its graphics are attractively detailed. Standard features include smartphone connectivity, so you can stream your favorite audio right from your device. Enjoy audiobooks, podcasts, news, music from your preferred apps, and more.

    The Mazda infotainment system in every CX-9 also includes Bluetooth for hands-free calls and texting, along with an HD radio. Control the device with touch commands or use the convenient Commander control located on the center console (directly to the driver’s right) to scroll through your options. Your car also pairs with the Mazda Connected Services app, which allows you to start your engine remotely, read up details on your vehicle status, access emergency/roadside services, and even connect with the available in-car Wi-Fi.

    Lots of Luxury to Enjoy

    More luxury awaits in the higher trims for the CX-9. Upgrade to the Touring edition to access the optional Sand Leather interior, and enjoy features like a rear power liftgate that makes loading and unloading cargo easier than ever. Upgrade the second row to two detached, reclining captain’s chairs - a special feature in the CX-9 Touring Premium package. This family-friendly package includes upgrades like additional USB charging ports, a superior audio system powered by Bose, one of the most in-demand names in music, and second-row window sunshades ideal for mid-day drives with a full cabin.

    As for the Carbon Edition, the upgraded exterior with a refined, gloss black grille, metallic paint, and 20” black metallic wheels is just a precursor to its refined interior upgrades. Available red leather-trimmed seats have a high-octane, sporty appearance, and its special badging and other signature touches are sure to turn heads.

    The Grand Touring edition gives you access to Mazda Navigation, a real-time navigation app that responds to audio commands and displays detailed maps right on your infotainment device. You’ll also get upgraded safety features and even more brushed aluminum trim. The top-tier Signature edition, meanwhile, offers a convenient center console for the second row of captain’s chairs, gorgeous Nappa leather seating, genuine rosewood inlays, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and special quilting, all of which appears to be right out of an imported luxury coupe. Yet, even this ultra-refined package still starts at under $50,000.

  • Safety

    The 2021 Mazda CX-9 earned a five-star rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, plus a rare Top Safety Pick+ rating from the IIHS, which means that this is certainly a family-friendly vehicle. However, safety is key to peace of mind for any driver, especially when navigating busy streets and highways. Thankfully, the new CX-9 has hosts of active safety features to aid you and help prevent collisions.

    Safety Is a Priority

    Notable features include Mazda's Smart Braking Systems, a feature that can actually identify a person crossing in front of your car, then brakes your vehicle before you take the time to react. Lane Departure Warning with Lane-Keep Assist can help you stay in your lane and avoid side impacts. This feature is excellent at identifying sleepy drivers, who may sway from lane to lane as they lose focus. In busy highway traffic, this feature can be a life-saver.

    All of the above features come standard with the 2021 CX-9, which is more generous than competing SUVs, to be certain. Also standard is Mazda Radar Cruise Control, which senses road conditions and changing elevations to keep you at a near-constant speed. There’s more to love from the i-Activsense Safety Technology suite in your new CX-9, including an available Active Driving Display that streams real-time data about your driving performance onto the bottom of your windshield.

    Available safety upgrades include the 360-degree View Monitor, which provides comprehensive views outside your vehicle. Back out of parking spots, look out at your blind spot, and check for low-lying obstacles around you with a simple look at your infotainment screen. Your Mazda can sense obstacles in your blind spot thanks to the special monitor, which will chime when fast-approaching vehicles enter your blind spot. Any time you activate your signal to change lanes, your CX-9 will notify you if it’s unsafe to move over.

    Rear Cross Traffic Alert eases backing out of crowded parking spots by sensing oncoming vehicles behind you. Take a look at the camera display on your infotainment device to see your rear view in crisp detail. Meanwhile, Traffic Sign Recognition can actually read signs and display information on your Active Driving Display. If you happen to miss a stop sign or speed limit change, your CX-9 will notify you. This vehicle really puts a focus on providing excellent safety features.
